Working strategically in the intersection between architecture and engineering, we integrate creativity and technical-knowledge into every stage of the design process. Taking this holistic, interdisciplinary approach, we specialize in inventive structures and spaces.

One of our main strengths is advanced analysis and design for complex structures. Special structures include those with non-euclidean geometries, composite materials and exposed elements. Special structures require both analytic and creative thinking. This is our primary area of expertise. Our unique interdisciplinary teams blend technical grit with imagination. Our expertise in special structures includes transformable structures, sculptures, pedestrian bridges and canopies. Our approach is to simplify, clarify and establish rhythm.
Buildability and cost are integral to our overall design approach with the consistent goal of making practical, lasting and efficient enclosures and structures.
